In 2017, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Beach Boys joined the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra as the special musical guest for the 21st annual Boston Pops on Nantucket. For five decades, The Beach Boys — America’s first pop band to reach the 50-year milestone — has recorded and performed the music that has become the world’s favorite soundtrack to summer.
On Saturday, August 11, 2018, join Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra for a night of music, dancing and fireworks at Jetties Beach. The annual concert is the largest single fundraiser for Nantucket Cottage Hospital that brings thousands of people together at Jetties Beach for an unforgettable night of entertainment. All funds generated during the event stay on Nantucket to sustain the hospital’s year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of the island community.

In 1997, one of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s most ardent supporters, Kathryn Clauss, had an idea. She wanted to bring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra to Nantucket to host a benefit concert for the hospital. No one believed she could pull it off, but with a lot of hard work and help from friends, she did.
The 21st annual event was spearheaded by Event Chairs Mary Jane and Glenn Creamer, together with Co-Chairs Laurie and Bob Monahan.
Together with a group of dedicated volunteers, the Creamers and Monahans added unique touches to last year's event.
